Save the date for Cheyney University of Pennsylvania’s Family Day on Saturday, September 30th.  The theme, “It’s a Family Affair”, makes it clear that everyone from Nanas and Pop Pops to siblings, aunts and uncles, even family friends are invited to join a day of fun, food and fellowship on the historic campus. Visitors will also get a chance to go to the 1 pm football game when the Cheyney Wolves host the East Stroudsburg Warriors. 

“We hope to get parents and students engaged,” explains Thom Nixon, Chair of this year’s event.  “We want freshmen parents to see how their kids have transitioned and adjusted, we want to highlight our student athletes, we want families of all of our Cheyney students to come to campus and enjoy all that we have planned.” 

Wolf Zones lined with vendors, a DJ, and games for children and adults will offer something for everyone.  Health officials will be on hand to give blood pressure screenings, nutrition tips, vision testing, and more. There will also be a delicious barbeque that’s sure to be finger-lickin’ good. 

Everything kicks off at 10 am and runs until 5 pm. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for children and include a t-shirt, entry to the football game, games, food, drinks and a good time. To purchase tickets, visit Ticketleap.
